Apocalypto, the story takes place in the Mayan kingdom in the 15th century. The main character Jaguar Paw and his clan gets captured for human sacrifice.
Jaguar Paw escapes to get back to his wife and child hiding in the rain forest . It's a simple escape story told in beautiful cinematic dramatic fashion. the real star of this film is cinematographer Dean Semler, brutality have never been shot more beautifully. If your an inspiring film maker especially a cinematographer this film should be studied,because the story is primarily told with the camera. In my opinion this is Mel Gibson greatest film I regret I never saw it on the big screen
